CNC Stone Crafters: Moving toward CNC technology: Initially established as a stone installation business, CNC Stone Crafters recently turned its focus to stone fabrication – investing in state-of-the-art machinery for a successful start.
When Frankie and David Tidwel l st a r ted CNC Stone c raf t e r s in Phil Campbell, AL, they were originally just doing installs. Over the past three years though, the company has purchased several machines that allow them to do fabrication as well. “If you had a mistake from another fabricator, instead of turning the mistake around in two or three hours, or at best two or three days, we were having to wait anywhere from seven to 14 days to get that mistake fixed,” said Kevin Hamby, the shop manager for CNC Stonecrafters. “Now going from hand work to machine work is a night and day difference.”
